Got Questions? We can help.
What do the emails look like?
Check out our support page to see details on what each of these emails look like and when they send. If a diner wishes to stop receiving these at any point they can unsubscribe from the footer of the emails and we will remove them from future sends.
How do diners subscribe or unsubscribe?
We’ll automatically send these emails to any diner who orders from you and has opted into receiving marketing. Diners can change these marketing settings, or unsubscribe at any time, by following the unsubscribe links at the bottom of the emails. They’ll still receive order notifications and updates.
I already do email marketing. Why should I use ChowNow’s automated email marketing?
With ChowNow’s automated email marketing, we do the work for you, letting you focus on what you do best —serving delicious food. Our email designs, messaging, and timing have been tested and perfected to maximize your results.
Does email marketing really work?
Yes! Restaurant partners who use our automated email marketing see an additional $34,000 in revenue each year, on average. Plus, it’s the easiest way to reach diners 24/7 and stay top of mind. Consistently popping into diners inboxes lets you encourage repeat visits, ultimately increasing orders and boosting your ticket sizes.
Other food ordering apps send emails too. What’s different about ChowNow’s automated email marketing?
We’ll always put your brand front and center, and give you full access to your diner data–something most apps don’t do. Each email highlights your logo, brand colors and food images that you send us, while you stay in control of your diner relationship. We’re just here to do the heavy lifting.
Can I promote in-house specials?
Our automated emails only promote online ordering specials, and use a scheduled calendar of our best-performing online ordering promos. To customize email or print marketing, head to our marketing store or reach out to your restaurant success manager.
Can I customize the emailed promotions?
Our scheduled promotions have been designed and tested to perform above industry standards, but we can customize your email promotions on request.
Do the automated emails promote my restaurant’s branded app or the ChowNow app?
If your restaurant has a branded mobile app, we will promote that from these emails. For restaurants who don’t have their own app, we’ll suggest the ChowNow app to your diners as another way they can support your restaurant, commission-free.
